First post here My Japanese manikin

I don't really collect Japanese items but I have a lot of it. Here's my first attempt at a manikin display. I still need to find a leather belt. The helmet is dated 1941 and is reportedly a bring back from Truk.

That is a beautiful display you have. Thanks for sharing it. I especially like all of the ordnance you have on the shelf.

I have been fortunate to find original gear in near new condition. The helmet came from a fellow collector long ago. He got it directly from the vet who brought it home.

You have a great collection of Japanese gear! The mannequin set up is great, love the helmet with net!

Looks like you have three type 38 rifles behind your manikin. I have just one type 38. Put a bayonet on them and it's  almost 6' in length. Japanese soldiers average height was 5 feet 3 inches. Very nice display. Good job.

I just realized that I first posted here 2 years ago almost to the day! I need to update the manikin photos since I was able to locate a belt.

Yes very nice display. I have all the pieces and parts have just never got around to putting it all together. Your example will be used to motivate my efforts. Thanks for sharing!
